Fly Tying Tip #110

Having bead heads to weight flies creates a front loaded and diving presentation.  Having weight distributed under the tying of a pattern can offer an even presentation or back weighted possibilities, especially on streamers.  Color coding with subtle differences in thread for the head of the fly offers the ability to tell heavy weighted flies from lightly weighted.  Create your code and just stay within a patterns range.  Red head left, Orange head right Aleene's Fusion Grubs.
